Of course, the hookup was as surprising as it was inevitable. Even though I knew there was always a potential for [a Nathan-Mer romance], I never really bet on it. I thought Shonda had other ideas. Popular on TVLine. The day before the table read, [exec producer] Debbie Allen came and told me.

'grey's anatomy': has meredith found her new mcdreamy?
Grey's Anatomy dropped a romance bombshell when it released its new trailer earlier this month, and on Thursday's two-hour season 15 premiere, the story behind Meredith Ellen Pompeo and DeLuca's Giacomo Gianniotti surprise makeout session -- which got fans in a tizzy -- was finally revealed. Was it a dream? Was it real?
Well, it turns out Meredith and DeLuca's between-the-sheets action was all in Meredith's head. What are you doing here?! Grey," DeLuca says flirtatiously before they continue on with their bedroom shenanigans.
It becomes clear early on that Meredith's sex dreams about DeLuca, which happen more than once by the way, may be a side effect of her being love-hungry and possibly ready to jump back into the dating game. So when it's time to go back to their daily lives in the real world, it gets more than a little awkward for Meredith and a hungover DeLuca, who appears to immediately regret drunkenly kissing her the day before at Jo and Alex's wedding.
I never should have kissed you like that. You're incredible," DeLuca apologizes to Meredith when they awkwardly bump into each other at the hospital. I respect you so much as a surgeon and I would never do that to you under normal circumstances. But you were very, very kind to me and I was drunk and the dress was I mean Whatever you want to call Meredith and DeLuca's thing, it doesn't go unnoticed by people at the hospital.

In fact, one of the patients, who was witness to their awkward conversation, calls Meredith out for having desires of the romantic kind. That prompts Meredith to confess to Miranda Bailey Chandra Wilson that she's having "inappropriate dreams" that she can't quite "put into words. Is Meredith ready to find a steady love post-Derek?
It seems that way, as she Googles the name of her patient, who happens to be a professional matchmaker, and has a flirty pseudo-meet cute with the "ortho god. But before she leaves, Meredith drops in one last zinger about Link's name, putting him in his place a bit. Your parents named you after two of the greatest figures of our time, both literary and historical, and you call yourself Link?
Is this just the start of a new something? Ahead of the Grey's premiere, Gianniotti played coy about the possibility of a Meredith and DeLuca romance this season. A friendship that could be more?
At the moment, we don't know. We're only on the sixth episode.

For now, it looks like Meredith and DeLuca are strictly in the friend zone and maybe, just maybe, it's Link who catches Meredith's eye. On Grey's, you never know.
